flatlay of makeup

I find beauty posts the easiest to whip up when I’m not sure what to write, so that’s a back-story of how today’s post came about!

For this post I wanted to have a little chat about the products in my makeup bag I’m loving lately, incase a) you were interested and b) you needed enabling for a trip to Boots..

Lets start with the foundation, Rimmel Match Perfection. I’m sure I’m extremely late to the band-wagon with this one, but I feel like it’s worth mentioning incase there’s anyone out there who hasn’t tried it yet. It’s my go-to for when I want lots of coverage if my skin is misbehaving and I want to not stare at it every time I look in the mirror. It doesn’t look cake-y or heavy on the skin at all, but it stays around a long time.

I’ve been using Glossier Stretch Concealer for a few months now and I really like the sheer, natural but build-able coverage it gives. You can always go in with more depending on how many hours you managed to sleep. It’s quite an oily texture which might take a while getting used to but that means it’s super hydrating under the eyes and doesn’t crease whatsoever.

Along with the concealer I’ve also been picking up the Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk for my cheeks. I still find this product a bit messy to use, and I can never manage to squeeze out the right amount of product, but I keep going back to it for the lovely flush it gives and the fact that it blends into the skin so easily, no brushes or sponges needed. It has the most natural finish which means I don’t mind the mess it makes as much.

I bought the L’oreal True Match Highlight before Christmas and over the last couple of weeks it’s become a firm favourite in my makeup bag. I even use it as a eyeshadow! Even though it can look a bit intimidating (it is basically silver) on the skin it just gives a subtle glow that isn’t ~wham bam in your face I’m a disco ball~. Plus I’m pretty sure it’s going to last me ages too.

After hearing all the hype about the Tanya Burr Selfie Lash I decided to give it a go and see what I thought. Honestly, it was a pleasant surprise because this stuff lives up to ALL the claims. You only need one coat for amazing length but applying two definitely makes it look like you have false lashes on, in a good way of course. Definitely worth a try.
